This girl. Pup Astrid hopes all of you kitty friends of ours don't mind seeing her mutty self today instead of one of the kitties. If it helps you decide, she sure does love kitties and would love to be friends with all of you kitties out there.
Seriously, this girl is all shades of terrified of dogs. Kitties, though, she loves her some kitties.
Oh, and don't let these pictures fool you. Our yard is all covered in that white stuff again now. Happy Spring, eh?
Pup Astrid snapped these shots for none other than the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the fabulous Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head.
Happy Sunday, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:
As part of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we're now talking about the risk of poisonous bites your kitty or pup might receive from other critters. Depending on where you live, or where you might be visiting with your furbaby, you might find it necessary to be on the lookout for critters such as snakes and spiders whose bites can have toxic effects. When it comes to snakes, some of the dangerous ones include certain coral snakes and rattlesnakes. As for spiders, as most of you certainly know, black widows and brown recluses are amongst the most dangerous. Bites from such critters can result in any number of dangerous or life-threatening side effects, including cardiovascular shock, respiratory distress, neurological damage, and tissue damage, among others.
When outdoors, especially in areas where snakes, spiders, or other venomous critters are known, always monitor your furbaby and keep an eye out for danger. As needed, research the wildlife of areas you will be, so that you know what snakes, spiders, and other critters of which to be cautious. Of course, if your kitty or pup is bitten by a spider or snake, especially a known venomous one, do not hesitate to seek veterinary care. In many such cases, counteracting the venom in a timely manner is crucial.
